The first impression a potential customer has of your company is typically formed when viewing your Web site. A visitor should be able to understand what a company does, how they're unique, and be motivated to give their contact information for something of value without leaving the first page.
Capitola, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2009
Company web sites have become the leading source of sales leads--yet many sites in the senior care market offer little more than online "brochures." A new article from SeniorCareMarketer.com explains how vendors can use search-optimized Web sites and marketing activities to attract and engage customers.
The first in a three part series, the article is titled "SEO and Marketing Web Sites: Internet Best Practices for Senior Care Vendors." It's now available from SeniorCareMarketer.com, the first high-tech marketing service for companies that sell to the rapidly-growing elder care industry.
The article walks suppliers through the basic steps of search-optimizing a Web site, as well as effective branding and messaging, the elements of a strong "marketing" site and how to choose the right keywords. Also included is a checklist of common missteps to avoid and an overview of keyword research and ranking tools. Together, the information will help senior care vendors increase their Internet visibility, Web traffic and search engine rankings--all of which translate to increased sales leads.
"Many Web sites in the senior care market are infrequently updated, contain little content such as white papers and reports, and the text is copied from printed materials," said Mark Willaman, founder of SeniorCareMarketer.com. "The first impression a potential customer has of your company is typically formed when viewing your Web site. A visitor should be able to understand what a company does, how they're unique, and be motivated to give their contact information for something of value without leaving the first page."
